Is there a way to break out MIDI in/out connections? One possible location could be on the dock port, but I haven't found a pinout for it. Another possible location could be the port on the right hand of the computer, with this symbol on it: ─█─ (Btw, I'd like to know what that port is, regardless if it's for something else)
Or if the sound chip has unconnected pins that anyone around here is aware of, I'm willing to get in there solder wires, just for the hell of it.
Anyway, help and suggestions welcome.

The docking station (FRU 12J2480) appears to have the 15 pin game/joystick port but I don't have complete documentation on hand for this port at the moment.

The SelectaBase 600 (FRU 12J2480) that Ray identifies has a dual game/midi port. I've never used it as a midi port, but the Crystal audio chip in the 600E is designed to drive it and should have no troubles.rkawakami wrote:The docking station (FRU 12J2480) appears to have the 15 pin game/joystick port but I don't have complete documentation on hand for this port at the moment.
The 760 series had a special cable that you could attach to a special proprietary IBM CD drive port similar to the floppy port you were wondering about. The cable functioned to turn the CD port into a game or midi port: P/N: 29H9467 and FRU P/N: 29h9269. (I think!). It looks like this:
[Note that this page I think incorrectly lists the cable as compatible with the 770/ED/X/Z. Also, I am providing this link only to use their photo, I have no knowledge about the company this web page comes from.]
To my knowledge there is no similar cable for the 600 series or the 770 series.
